APC, detail spray, waterless wash and some microfiber. Maybe some bug/tar remover. Other than that if you have a well maintained clear coat there's no need to carry much else.

Layering wax doesn't really help with protection, just ensures you didn't miss any spots really. You can layer a sealant then a wax if you want more protection.

Yep, I may be a bit biased but I do like the changes compared to the 10-13. Although the 10-13's are the ones that made me buy this car in the first place.

Everything can be fixed, it's just a matter of $$$. Honestly don't think you will get too many responses here on the body work and what it will cost or how. Ask your dealer or body shop.
